Three Year's In The Making

Three year's ago Roy Keefer participated in the first Bowhunt with Billy Don and hunted for an Aoudad as well as a nice buck. He got the buck but the Aoudads wouldn't co-operate. The next year he went Aoudad-less again. But today Roy's perseverance and patience paid off.

Roy and Clint Carpenter (on video) went to a stand on top of a rocky, wooded hill near a fence line. They hung up two Trophy Leaf masking scent plastic leaves (from Wildlife Research Center) inside the blind by the two shooting windows they made in the Matrix. The Scent Leaves were to cover their scent ... and they did ... real good.

First they saw an 8-point buck and it kept looking off at something behind the blind. Roy carefully cracked a narrow slit in the closed up side window of the blind. Four Aoudads were 5 yards away, watching the buck.

The buck left and the Aoudads circled out and go in the shooting window and stopped in bow range. Roy drew on the biggest Aoudad and Clint whisper for him to let it take two more steps because the Aoudad's rib area was behind the strap in the blind's window (looking through the video camera's viewfinder). At the same time the buck appeared again and the Aoudad turned to leave.

Roy did what Roy does best and put his arrow behind the shoulder, a pass through shot. 

The Aoudad ran and then went down 60 yards away at the edge of a steep rocky cliff. Roy had just taken his Aoudad.
